Frequently Asked Questions: Sponge Cleanser
For best results and to cut through stubborn, long stay foundation, we recommend to use the specially formulated STYLPRO Squeeze Sparkle Cleansing solution.
The STYLPRO Sponge Sparkle Cleanser contains 2,2,4,4,6,8,8-heptamethylnonane, a gentle solution common in skincare products. The STYLPRO cleanser is oil and fragrance free, and Registered by the Vegan society.
No. In order to leave brushes both clean and silky soft, our Brush Cleanser includes a blend of conditioning oils such as argon and wheat germ. Sponges however are made from foam, and require a different formulation to leave them clean and soft. Using the STYLPRO Brush Cleanser instead of the especially formulated Sponge Sparkle Cleanser may not only leave your sponge with a slightly oily feel, but will not clean your sponge as effectively.
Once you add the specially formulated Sparkle Cleanser to the bowl and after lightly massaging the sponge, we then recommend you add in recently boiled water, to mix the 2 solutions together, providing best results.
We recommend using 20ml of Sponge Sparkle Cleanser in the STYLPRO Squeeze bowl, as when mixed with recently boiled water, this is enough to clean even the dirtiest of makeup sponges. Please ensure you massage the cleanser into the sponge before pouring the water in.
The Sponge Sparkle Cleanser has been formulated to clean sponges and remove oil from even the most stubborn long-stay foundation. Its gentle but deep cleaning formula delves through the layers of makeup sponges, reducing bacteria and leaving them ready to use instantly. The solution is free from alcohol, parabens and sulphates and is registered by the Vegan Society. When used in conjunction with the STYLPRO Squeeze, it will leave your makeup sponge ready to use again in only 1 minute.

Yes, the Sponge Sparkle Cleanser is registered by the Vegan Society as a product suitable for Vegans as it does not involve or contain animal-derived ingredients and has not involved animal testing.
For sponges that are being used on your own face, you may re-use the cleanser and water. For sponges that may be used on others (Makeup Artists) we suggest changing the solution after each wash. However, best results are achieved when you change the cleanser for each sponge, massaging the cleanser into your sponge and using recently boiled water.
No, your sponges will not need rinsing after cleaning. The spinning action of the STYLPRO Squeeze removes the majority of the cleanser and water, leaving the sponge with just enough moisture to begin reapplying foundation without the need to dampen your sponge.
Yes, with 20ml of the Sponge Sparkle Cleanser solution, the STYLPRO Squeeze will leave your sponge sparkling clean. The Sparkle Cleanser was developed especially for this purpose. Estee Lauder Double Wear is one of the most popular foundations and is well known to be difficult to remove. In our testing we used this foundation as our benchmark. Please note, some older sponges may have stains that cannot be removed, however the large majority will be washed away.
